Mates Al and Sam conceived Konpira Maru over some beers at the pub, releasing their first wine in 2014. Their focus has been on delicious, easy drinking wines that are affordable enough to have with your pasta during the week or to crack a second bottle of without getting stressed out. They're doing great things! This release is named after the film Gymtaka, which was once voted the 17th worst film of all time! I can tell you with some confidence that this lovely drop will not be making any such 'worst of' lists! Strawberry and cream aromatics and a pallet of plum and rhubarb with lovely mid-palate tannin. Beautiful stuff and such great value!
